Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT) is the world's largest retailer and has become a heavyweight in all corners of the market. Electronics? Check. Food? Check. Home furnishings? Check.
This wide reach and variety of products are part of the reason for sprawling supercenters that offer everything under one gigantic roof. But people with sore feet, take heart: The next category the king of retail wants to dominate may actually cut the mileage on your shopping cart.
That business is home grocery delivery, which Wal-Mart may soon test via online sales in California. And after that, it may be coming to a store near you.

"Webvan was an online "credit and delivery" grocery business that went bankrupt in 2001.". Walmart's customers are all the people that used to work at locally owned markets, who were put out of business by Wal2walmart, and now are to poor to shop anywhere else. What a great business model. Can't see that they could afford to pay for home delivery.
We got that here in the UK with the big 5, its rather popular here and I think it works out 'greener'. We only get shopping delivered when we are buying a large amount, other wise we carry everything in huge backpacks that look like they are gonna take us up the Scottish mountains! I can carry some serious weight, you have no idea
